So on to Staunton Wedfest… Festival Bride to Be Rio got in touch with Wedfest well over a year ago looking for us to design the wedding stationery for their upcoming festival wedding. The couple had seen our previous work and decided that Wedfest was the wedding stationery company for them. Which make senses as we are the experts in festival wedding stationery. 🙂
Festival Ticket Wedding Invitations
For their big day they wanted us to create festival ticket wedding invitations, festival wristbands for their wedding guests to wear on the day of the wedding and festival vip lanyard passes which doubled as both the wedding place name settings and also the line up of what was happening at Staunton Wedfest. As always they came to the right place and we got to work.
For the festival wedding invites they wanted them to look like a festival style party in a field as thats exactly what their wedding day was going to be. The couple got married in a church and then they and all their wedding guests made their way to Westmead Events, Nutfield which is an amazing 11 acre outdoor wedding, party and event venue in Surrey. Here the couple were able to transform the area into their dream wedding and as it was their dream wedding festival.
On the invites we had a layout of fields with flowers, festival flags, silhouettes of people dancing, a stage, an electric sun and sky scene with fairy lights all along the top and a VW Camper Bus which would be both their wedding transport and their wedding photo booth later in the evening.
The main part of the wedding invitations has the STAUNTON WEDFEST logo and the couples hashtag beneath it reading #stauntonwedfest followed by the wedding date and a line letting the wedding guests know about all the cool things to expect from the wedding such as Great Music, Great food, Great Company and Amazing Memories…
The reverse side of the wedding invites has much fuller detail on the wedding ceremony and reception venues and times for the wedding. The invites were ticket style so they came with a tear off RSVP card which the guests could fill in and send back to the couple and let them know if they were going to attend the wedding, if they needed to catch the bus and if they needed a parking space at the festival amongst other information.
We also made the couple matching evening invitations which followed the same design theme but had more of an early evening night time vibe with some warm sunset colours and purple, orange and pink sky which looks beautiful in the final printed invitations as you can see in the photos…
Festival Wedding Decoration
The couples wedding as we said was held in Westmead Events, Nutfield and they had several festival tents erected to host the reception and the live music, food stalls and everything that took place during the day and the whole area looked amazing. I mean if you want your wedding to look like an actual festival just check out these photos…
The wedding reception tent itself looked absolutely stunning as you can see in these photos…
The wedding tables were all decorated beautifully with gorgeous festival themes and music themes all through the decorations. They had flowers in welly boots, music themed vinyl record wedding table names, disposable cameras for the guests to random festival photos and festival party bags for each wedding Guest.
Festival Wedding Place Card Lanyards and Line Up
For the wedding tables we made the couple Festival VIP Pass style lanyards which doubled as the wedding place names. The Wedding Tables had wedding favour bags at each seat and each one had of the wedding lanyards attached to each to let each guest know where they were sitting.
The place cards doubled as festival line up lanyards and the guests all wore them throughout the wedding reception and for the rest of the evening. Along with their festival wedding wristbands the vip pass lanyards brought a lot of colour and festival fun to an already colourful and fun filled day.
The festival lanyards followed the same design style as the wedding invitations and had an area for each guests name to be written.
wedfest wedding lanyard program line up
On the reverse side of the vip pass lanyards was the wedding line up which featured information on all the activities of the wedding day including what bars there was, food stalls, the bands that were playing on each stage and some other information the couple wanted to pass on to the guests.
Festival Wedding Wristbands
One of the wedding favours that was contained in the wedding party bags was the beautifully made woven fabric festival wristbands which we made for Rio & Matt’s big day. The wedding wristbands featured a multicoloured festival style design with the words STAUNTON WEDFEST as the main text and the couples name and wedding dates on the tails.
For the evening only guests once they arrived at the reception there was also festival wedding wristbands set out for them and they were encouraged to take and wear one along with some festival glow sticks.
Of course it wasn’t just the wedding guests wearing the lanyards and wristbands the Bride and Groom and full wedding party including parents and relatives also donned their wedfest lanyards and wedfest wristbands for the whole day including during their wedding speeches which was captured beautifully by Real Simple Photography as you can see in the photos below…
Once the main reception duties, speeches, dinner etc. was done it was onto the party and what a night it looked to be… Starting off with a bit of fun from the groom… 🙂 Enjoy the rest of the photos from the couples amazing wedding…
Of course when at a wedding the talk is always of who’s next and the throwing of the bouquet is always one way to find out…
Get up there big man….
